    This is for a very dear Japanese friend of mine. The individual blocks are 8 inch, and paper pieced. I did this as a quilt as you go. I've been working on it since March of this year. I didn't think I'd ever finish it.

    I can't believe I'm done

    Did I count 120 blocks in that quilt! That's quite a project. It's gorgeous. You should be proud of yourself. Working on it since March? It would have taken me MUCH longer. :)

    This is just spectacular! I love it, and your friend will too. I find the Oriental patterned fabric to be irresistible, and I have quite a stash of them. This is giving me ideas!
